Vitamin C: Unveiling its potent role in the battle against acne

Reading time: 4 min

The struggle for clear, radiant skin is real for most people, especially for those battling acne. Acne is a common skin concern that affects millions worldwide, and if you're a member of the blemish-prone skin team like us, you're likely on the constant hunt for effective yet gentle solutions. While powerful ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid are often recommended, they can sometimes be harsh and leave your skin feeling irritated. But, don’t despair just yet! The quest for the perfect solution may feel relentless (trust us, we’ve been there), however, there's one ingredient that deserves a spot on your skincare shelf: vitamin C.

This powerful antioxidant has emerged in recent years as a valuable addition to our acne-fighting arsenal. Not only it helps boost your immune system; but it offers a multitude of benefits, helping you achieve a smoother, brighter complexion. Let's delve into the science behind vitamin C and how it can help tame those pesky breakouts.


Understanding Vitamin C and its role in skin health:



Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble antioxidant, naturally found in citrus fruits, vegetables, and certain serums. It’s an essential nutrient vital for various bodily functions, including collagen production, wound healing, and immune system support. Here's how it works wonders on acne-prone skin:



  • Combats inflammation: Vitamin C's antioxidant properties help neutralize free radicals, which contribute to inflammation caused by acne. This can lead to a reduction in redness and soothe irritated skin.


  • Fades hyperpigmentation: Acne breakouts can leave behind stubborn dark spots, known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Vitamin C inhibits the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color, thereby helping to fade existing dark spots and prevent new ones from forming.


  • Boosts collagen production: Collagen is the building block of healthy skin, providing structure and elasticity. Vitamin C stimulates collagen production, which can help improve skin texture, minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and speed up the wound healing process, leading to firmer, plumper skin.


  • Protects against sun damage: Sun exposure can worsen acne and exacerbate pigmentation issues. The powerful antioxidant offers some protection against harmful UV rays, reducing the risk of sun damage and further breakouts.

Here's how to incorporate our vitamin C moisturizer into your skincare routine for maximum benefit:
  • Cleanse your face: Kickstart your routine with a refreshing cleanse using the Face Reset gentle cleanser enriched with squalane and coconut derived ingredients to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. If you use a toner, apply it after cleansing and before the vitamin C serum.


  • Apply a serum: Apply a few drops of the Shine Bright Serum to your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Gently massage it into your skin until fully absorbed.This unique serum not only moisturizes your skin but also restores its vitality, guards against discoloration and dark patches, and promotes a beautifully even skin tone. 


  • Moisturize: Elevate your routine by applying two pumps of our powerhouse C Bomb Moisturizer to lock in hydration. Use in the mornings and nights, or at any moment your skin needs a hydrating boost.


  • Sunscreen is essential: Seal the deal with SPF! Try the Let it Sun SPF 50+ Gel for a protective glow. Remember that vitamin C can increase sun sensitivity, making sunscreen even more crucial. Apply a generous amount to all exposed skin 15 minutes before sun exposure, and reapply every 2 hours or immediately after sweating or towel drying.
